Vegetation patterns on the Dungeness shingle
Tuesday November 3 2020 @ 7:45 pm - 9:30 pm
Dungeness is the largest shingle landscape in Europe, with a sequence of several hundred shingle ridges extending several kilometres inland. The natural succession of vegetation change associated with ridge age will be described. Much of the landscape has been disturbed by man, resulting in a rich secondary flora. Scattered over the area are wetlands, some natural and others man-made, which add further to the diversity. These various elements make Dungeness one of the richest sites for plants in Kent. Speaker Dr Brian Ferry (Royal Holloway College). Members only event. Zoom invitations to be sent out with the November newsletter on November 1st.
